Like Dominik, I consider a repeated event as a calendar object on its
own. Such an object has a representation in the iCal format. Org mode
must stick to the correct representation of this object, and it is up
to each calendar tool to display it in a way or an other to the user.
If you consider others tools as broken in this area, and don't feel
like fixing them, you can maybe implement a "go-between" layer that
takes iCal file in input, and outputs the same iCal file with repeated
events changed to dated events, with date set on next occurence.
